Florida Gators linebacker Antonio Morrison was arrested early this morning in Gainesville after he allegedly punched a bouncer at a bar. According to a police report, Morrison became furious when informed of a cover charge to enter Kava Bar and Hookah Lounge. As we’ve already established this morning, being a college football player comes with a slew of problems.
Morrison said, “Do you know who I am. I am a UF football player. I am Antonio!” Morrison, who is listed at 6-foot-1, 230 pounds, then punched the man and left the scene.
He was charged with first-degree simple battery.
Morrison made a name for himself last year with a game-changing hit on Florida State’s EJ Manuel in the Gators’ 37-26 victory. But apparently not a big enough name to reap the sweet perk of free hookah lounge entry.
